In 1762, “A plan of Merrion Street and the the adjacent Neighbourhood “ by jonathan Barker was produced from the National Archives

In 1853, the Great Industrial Exhibition was held - the frontage onto Merrion Square was 300 feet , was constructed by Richard Turner and funded by William Dargan 

Back in 2018, there was an exhibition called
“ Drawing Dublin” in the National Gallery curated by Anne Hodge and Niamh Mac Nally. - they showed Malton prints, Jack B yeats, Harry Kernoff. Micheal Healy watercolours of people, Flora Mitchell, Walter Osborne, Sarah Purser

THIS SUNDAY, THERE IS AN INTERNATIONAL FESTIVAL OF LITERATURE IN SQUARE -PEOPLE, BUILDINGS, HISTORY - LOTS TO DRAW!

 

If it's your first time and you can't spot anyone at 2pm, just choose something to sketch and get stuck in. Keep your eyes open for anyone carrying a sketchbook and say hello.
It's a friendly crowd who you'll get to know when we get together at 4pm. Suggested venue is
Gallery Cafe in the National gallery ( closes at 5) Forecast : rain !

Don't worry if you're late, most of us usually are! You need to bring your own paper and pens/pencils etc.
If you would like your sketch to be added to the website, email to: dublinsketchers @ gmail .com or post it to the Dublin Sketchers Social WhatsApp group if you are on that.

Please edit your image so that it is low res and properly oriented for posting to the website. If you're on Instagram, use#dublinsketchers #urbansketchers

Looking forward to seeing you there.

Sketches done on Sunday May 15th. 2022, from around St Patricks Cathedral.

Sunday 8th May 2022

On Sunday 8th May, from 2pm, Dublin Sketchers will be around Royal Canal Terrace/ kings inns/ TUD Grangegorman
Above is another  image from a Malton Print of Dublin. This is a view which no longer exists but as you can see, there are some recognisable elements.


TUD Grangegorman campus is right beside this and is a very interesting area as also is the Kings Inns. There is also a very fine 1946 factory building called Hendrons which is in reinforced concrete.
 

Lots of choice! The weather is set to be good so it is suggested to meet externally near the “ Happy Days Coffee van “ on the TUD campus from 4 pm : they are meant to be open until 6 but previous experience is that it is earlier .

If it's your first time and you can't spot anyone at 2pm, just choose something to sketch and get stuck in. Keep your eyes open for anyone carrying a sketchbook and say hello.

It's a friendly crowd who you'll get to know when we get together at 4pm.
This area is right beside the Broadstone Luas stop. 

Don't worry if you're late, most of us usually are! You need to bring your own paper and pens/pencils etc.
